What a fun day of movies. Next year maybe some newer scary movies. The theater was a bit cold at times that made it a bit uncomfrotable but everyone was very friendly and nice

More Information


Noon_: The Fog _

Director: John Carpenter

Description: Carpenter’s creepy, atmospheric follow-up to _Halloween _is about a sleepy seaside village of Antonio Bay that is about to learn the true meaning of the word “vengeance.” It stars Adrienne Barbeau, Jamie Lee Curtis, Tom Atkins and Janet Leigh and tells the story of a strange, glowing fog that sweeps in over a small coastal town in California, bringing with it the vengeful ghosts of mariners who were killed in a shipwreck there exactly 100 years earlier.

Running Time: 90 min, Rating: PG

2:00pm: _Burnt Offerings __

_Director: Dan Curtis

Description: Step inside a vacation house of terror in this terrifying thriller that does for summer homes what _Jaws _did for the ocean. Marian (Karen Black) and Ben (Oliver Reed) find it hard to believe that for only $900 they’ve rented a sprawling country mansion (from Burgess Meredith and Eileen Heckart) for the entire summer. But as they settle into their isolated estate with their annoying son (Lee Montgomery) and Ben’s cranky old aunt (Bette Davis), they find themselves surrounded by a living presence – an evil, hypnotic, occult force – that feeds on torture, fear… and murder.

Running Time: 114 minutes, Rating: PG


4:00pm: _Eyes of Laura Mars *

_Director: Irvin Kershner

Description: This riveting tale of murder and suspense stars Faye Dunaway as Laura Mars, New York’s most controversial fashion photographer. World renowned for her sensational, erotic portraits of models in settings of glorified urban violence, Laura Mars exhibits a mystifying psychic ability. In her mind’s eye, as if through the lens of her camera, she “witnesses” a series of bizarre murders with terrifying clarity. All of the victims are people Laura has known. Police detective John Neville (Tommy Lee Jones) discovers a striking similarity between Laura’s works and classified police photograph’s of the murders and he attempts to unravel the events which have taken control of Laura’s mind.

Running Time: 103min, Rating: R

6:00pm: _Dressed to Kill _

Director: Brian De Palma

Description: Writer/Director De Palma’s steamy libidinous and extremely bloody thriller. This taut psycho-sexual chiller is a razor sharp tale of passion, madness and murder that’s full of nail biting suspense. Fashionable Manhattan therapist Dr. Robert Elliott (Michael Caine) faces the most terrifying moment of his life, when a psychotic killer begins attacking the women in his life (Angie Dickinson and Nancy Allen) with a straight razor stolen from his office. Desperate to find the murderer before anyone else is hurt, Elliott is soon drawn into a dark and disturbing world of chilling desires. And as the doctor edges closer to the terrible truth, he finds himself lost in a provocative and deadly maze of obsession, deviance and deceit, where the most harmless erotic fantasies can become the most deadly sexual nightmares. With Dennis Franz and Keith Gordon.

Running Time: 105 minutes, Rating: Unrated

8:00pm: _Black Christmas _

Director: Bob Clark

Description: A very chilling, innovative and well-crafted slasher film by the late Bob Clark (Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things, Deathdream, Christmas Story, Porky’s). This classic horror film is considered by genre connoisseurs to be the greatest horror film to come out of Canada and the movie proved to be a huge influence on the slasher films (such as _Halloween _and Friday the 13th) that followed it. _Black Christmas _stands up as an innovative film today and stars cult icons: John Saxon, Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, Art Hindle and Andrea Martin.

Running Time: 98 min, Rating: R

10:00pm: _Suspiria __

But when a series of bizarre incidents and horrific crimes turn the school into a walking nightmare of the damned, Suzy must escape the academy’s unspeakable secret of supernatural evil. Truly one of the most shocking and hallucinatory horror movies in history as you’ve never seen or heard it before. Music score by Goblin!

Running Time: 98 minutes, Rating: R
